Every role seems to be equally important and all are filled extremely well, 19 November 2016
Author: deickemeyer from Chicago

The characters in this picture play for the sake of portraying a clearly set forth situation. There is no lead in it; every role seems to be equally important and all are filled extremely well. Mr. Costello plays a young lawyer, son of a fairly rich elderly business man (Mr. Eldridge). Three swindlers (played by Van Dyke Brooke, Earl Williams and Harold Wilson) have got him involved in a bogus mine and innocently he has permitted himself to be made president of it. The "bubble" bursts; the swindlers bribe the butler to rob him of the only evidence that can clear him and are making him the scapegoat; but the son, the lawyer, by his astuteness, gets a confession from the servant and, in the trial, discomforts the villains. Miss Zena Kieffe, as the daughter of the old business man, brings much charm of personality and acting into several of the scenes. The photography and general handling of the pictures are excellent. It makes a very interesting release. - The Moving Picture World, June 1, 1912
